A Penny Black card for Mom...


I made this card for my Mom. It was a simple card... but the coloring took so long. I need to work on my copic blending. This is an old Penny Black stamp I found in my stamp drawer. I think I scored this stamp from a friend who was trying to thin out her collection, several years ago. I don't know how she could part with this one. Lucky me!

My first post for June

I'm back! I know it's already June 28th and this is my FIRST post for the month of June. I'll try to keep this brief, so that I can get back to my craft desk and start making stuff. First of all, I wanted to say thank you to all these talented ladies. These are the RAKS that I received.

She made this accordion folder closed with velcro and inside, there were these extra goodies and some cute stamped images.


FROM Denise - Denise Loves Stamps

This is a card folder. I should have took a picture of it opened. It had two pockets on the inside and it filled with some hand stamped images... I love this folder.

FROM Linda - Simple and Sassy Creations

She made this purse box... closes with velcro. Inside she had some stamped images and a Chococat notepad and a cellphone charm. As you know, Chococat is my favorite!


FROM Marisa -Marisa Faylim Designs

I recieved this June ALOHA RAK. For June, it was a flower theme. Marisa also included some extra goodies...I tried to fit them all into the picture. These flowers are just beautiful!


Here's a better picture of the card. I love what she did with the colors...


Thank you to ALL for their thoughtful and generous RAKS.


Ok... and now here are a couple cards I've made in June. Yes, just a couple : ( I made a few more that I needed for parties and graduations this month... but as usual, I was putting on the finishing touches 5 minutes before leaving the house to go to the party...so I didn't take any pictures.


This was the card for my June Aloha RAK. It's a Penny Black image. I punched holes where the stamped flowers were so that I could run the wire of these flowers through the back. In hind sight, I probably should have just cut the wire off. The roses are from Natural Accents. I hope she likes her card...I added some small goodies with her card. It was late being mailed out...so she probably wont get it until tomorrow.

Dawne came over to my house at the beginning of June and we were intent on working on our projects together. I'm happy to say that I actually worked on something with her help and with her stuff...and made this card for my nephew Ryder's 1st Birthday! He was born in the Year of the Monkey... so it fits him perfectly!


I hope you all had a restful Sunday... : ) Take care and thanks for stopping by!
